Note that we're not necessarily talking / itself here, but for instance
something like /home/usera, where that directory is itself a mountpoint
(suppose you have usera and userb, each with their own separate
filesystems mounted at /home/usera and /home/userb).
Or to use a setup I use myself as an example, while most of my system is
on SSD, I still use a spinning rust drive, or actually a partition on
that spinning rust drive, for my media. I mount it at /mm (multimedia).
I obviously want my normal user to be able to write to it, which in the
simplest config would have /mm filesystem root dir (aka mounted mount-
point) permissions set to owned and writable by my normal user.
However, instead of having /mm itself owned and writable by that user,
we'll call them usera, I can create /mm/usera (and for another user
/mm/usrb if desired), and have that owned and writable by usera instead,
with the /mm filesystem root actually owned and only writable by root.
That's what I was suggesting. But (assuming he understood my suggestion
in the first place) DRE says that's not a working alternative for him.
